CB Deiondre Hall (ankle) missed
his second straight game against Jacksonville because of injury.
Hall would not have practiced Monday if one had been held.
CB Bryce Callahan (hamstring) made his fifth start despite suffering
with the injury throughout the week and coming out of the Oct. 9
loss to Indianapolis because of it. Callahan's status for the Green
Bay game is day to day. He would not have practiced Monday if
practice had been held.
RB Jeremy Langford (ankle) missed his third straight game.
Langford's injury has been labeled a high ankle sprain. He would not
have practiced Monday if one had been held and is week to week.
LB Willie Young has moved to a tie for the NFC lead with six sacks.
Young's effectiveness only figures to become greater when linebacker
Pernell McPhee is activated from the physically-unable-to-perform
list after recovering from offseason knee surgery. McPhee became
eligible to be considered for activation Friday and Fox said Monday
that there is a possibility he could return against Green Bay.
WR Eddie Royal (toe)left Sunday's game with Jacksonville and did not
return. He was replaced as slot receiver by Josh Bellamy. Royal's
status for Thursday is unknown and he is day to day. If there had
been practice Monday, he would have sat out.
RB Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) would have practiced Monday on a
limited basis due to the injury that kept him out of three games
earlier. Carey went through Sunday's game without a problem.
LB Leonard Floyd (calf) missed his second straight game due to
injury. Floyd had practiced during the week on a limited basis. The
Bears' No. 1 draft choice in 2016 has been in four games, has half a
sack and has been in on 13 tackles. Floyd would have practiced on a
limited basis Monday if practice had been held, according to coach
NT Eddie Goldman (ankle) missed his fourth straight game with the
injury suffered against Philadelphia on Sept. 19. Goldman would not
have practiced Monday if one had been held.

G Josh Sitton (ankle) went out of Sunday's game due to injury and
went into the game already an injury concern due to a shoulder that
cost him practice time each week since suffering it in the season's
first game. Ted Larson replaced Sitton at left guard. Sitton
wouldn't have practiced if it was held. He is day to day.
QB Jay Cutler (thumb) missed his fourth straight game and would not
have practiced Monday if practice had been held. It's unlikely he'll
play against the Packers Thursday. He is regarded as week to week.
CB Tracy Porter (knee) suffered an injury Sunday when he slipped and
allowed a 51-yard game-winning TD pass. The team erroneously
reported it as an ankle injury after the game. He is day to day for
Thursday's game in Green Bay and if there had been practice Monday
(Oct. 17) he would have sat out, according to coach John Fox.
LB Sam Acho (ribs) would have been limited in Monday's practice if
one were held. He played Sunday and has been playing through the
injury. He is likely to play Thursday.
TE Zach Miller (ribs) would have practiced on a limited basis if
practice had been held. He has been playing through the injury and
is likely to play Thursday.
LB Danny Trevathan came out of Sunday's game in some passing
situations but only because of matchups. The defense went with some
dime defenses that used three safeties to match up with
pass-catching tight ends.
